Heliconia chartacea is quite a common and cultivated Heliconia, native from South America and now found all over the world, in botanical gardens and homes. Some of the breeds are also called "Sexy Pink" Heliconia, but there are other ones around, aslo breeds, but all with the same scientific names, unless there are hybrids.
